Not 100% sure on run times, as im just now getting it setup for track racing. When im just messing around the house id say close if not alittle more then the 2 strokes. I still have allot to figure out on it. I only see more HP and better gas mileage in the future.

I do run a cooling fan, its belt driven off custom flywheel.
With out fan iv temped it at 320+ so i really does need the fan setup.
Im also working on machining a cooling head for it now. So i can try it
with out the fan setup and see what i get. And as for fuel i use Gen2 30%
with extra oil mixed in, with a perry fuel pump.

The fs40-c is the car version os made awhile back. Crankshaft,valve springs,
cam, carb and intake are different from just the fs40 air plane engine.

yes car engine...right.

lift and duration differences with the cam? and/or just timing?

physical crank differences?

valve springs? stiffer, softer? adapted from different model?

what about the carb?

Intake? modified airplane version or it's own casting?
